I don't think it was the Texans intension to draft Wand to be "the LT". Perhaps their hope, but not their expectation. If they had that kind of confidence in his potential, they wouldn't have waited until the 3rd round
to take him. After all, they gave up 3 picks to move all the way into the
1st round this year to draft another project. Cass is not bashful 'bout betting the farm on his hunches.
As for Pitts, even though he apparently does not have the quickness, agility to be a top-notch LT, he's been the most productive 2nd round pick they've made so far - Gaffney has been a bit of a disappointment and last years 2s (including Hollings - another one of Cass's hunches), are too banged up to
make a contribution.
By the way, Gross will be doing a very good job again this year - playing LT.
